    Andre Craig Appreciation Thread

    This might've been talked about in a different thread but with BenFreds article today, I felt this needed a bump. It looks to me like Andre is a big part of the student section being active and involved. I don't know how much they pay him but they need to give him a raise to keep him coming back. He does a great job. Link
  2. Credit @Box and Won for the idea but I can post 2 Field of dreams related items in a week. Not going to miss this chance. Our team heading into the locker room:
  3. I am going to need the first 4 seconds of this video as a gif for all future recruits Ford gets if somebody can do that.
  4. The men's official twitter account should tweet some out tomorrow.

    OT: Midtown Development

    Hire James Earl Jones to give his Field of Dreams speech slightly changed? Alumni will come, Fred. They'll come to St. Louis for reasons they can't even fathom. They'll turn up on Laclede not knowing for sure why they're doing it. They'll arrive at the front door as innocent as students, longing for the past. "Of course, we won't mind if you look around", you'll say. "It's only $20 donation per person". They'll pass over the money without even thinking about it, for it is money they have and fun they lack. And they'll walk up to the bar; waiting for a shot on a perfect night. They'll find they have reserved table for penny pitchers upstairs, where they sat when they were students and chugged their beers. And they'll drink beer and it'll be as if they dipped themselves in magic waters. The memories will be so thick they'll have to brush them away from their faces. Oh alumni will come Fred.

    Radford? Rutgers? Bowling Green?

    I agree and I wasn't saying he is above criticism. Just saying my expectations were set with a different roster. His offense definitely has left a lot to be desired and he hasn't adjusted it to fit the players he has since he doesn't have a shooter. But again I guess it comes to expectations. I never expected Ford to be the next Majerus in coaching. The defense this year has been good but still can find problems like you pointed out. I was expecting a great recruiter with Ford and with the freshmen he has brought in, class he has coming in next year, I haven't been disappointed there.

    Radford? Rutgers? Bowling Green?

    Sure but when I look at why I had high expectations, a big part was the deep front court and Isabell being a big part of offense. We lost Santos and Gordon and Isabell has been a disappointment. I dont know what happened with Santos but knew Gordon was risk but one worth taking. Just was off on Isabell helping the offense and him being a grad transfer, Ford didn't have years evaluating how he'd fit in like he does with freshmen recruits. Besides, sit 2 put him in position where he needed Isabell to be big part of offense. I guess I just can't put those things on Ford. If those 3 weren't on the roster coming into the season, I wouldn't have had high expectations.

    Recruiting - 2020 Class (Optimal Vision Class)

    Did Larry Hughes Jr play much? Looks like senior posted a photo of him with the ball.

    Signed Recruit Thread 2018-19

    Either have I. I love it! When I saw the first interview with Frank after he committed I thought a lot of it had to due with his mom's health but man he really can't wait to be a Billiken.

    The Bills and Dayton EVEN

    Jacobs has already played enough where its not like he could be thinking about transferring after the season and getting a medical redshirt for this year right?

    OT: Ford’s seat getting warm

    The one thing to keep in mind is it was almost exactly a year ago most of us were saying the administrators and the Title IX office gave us the death penalty or that it would take years to get out of. Ford kept the recruits, got a few spring recruits and followed it up with a solid early signing period. Not saying Ford is above criticism but I never expected a Majerus as a coach. I expected him to recruit enough talent that can win the A10 and I still think he can be able to do that.

    GDT: RI round 2 fight night

    Yes, I wanted Gordon because that is what he said, he wanted to turn SLU into a winner. He had different problems it sounded like that caused problems here. Again, winners like to win but winners also see how they can help and lead their team to win. Not all kids think, "great this team is a tournament team so I can join, sit on the bench, maybe get a few minutes a game but hey I will be in the tournament." No, a lot want to be a big part that leads the team to the tournament. If you think kids won't join a team because they aren't winning, fine I am not going to try and change your mind but a lot of kids want to see the minutes and how they can contribute to make the team into a winner if it isn't.

    GDT: RI round 2 fight night

    To be honest, if a kid doesn't join just due to the fact the team isn't winning currently, not sure if I want him. I want the kids that have the mindset that they can come in and contribute to make SLU a winning team. Edit: To go along with that, here was Hargrove earlier in January talking about how he can help SLU out to win. Link

    GDT: RI round 2 fight night

    Dont think that's true. He says he doesnt get on the guys about making them. They know they need to make them so just yelling at them about it doesnt help.
